Sunday's bookbinding workshop was a great success! Fellow tutor Laura Joy and I were joined by 6 participants, some of whom had made books before, others had not. We set up the day with examples of the book forms we'd be making. And sunflowers.
As well as a quick and simple Hot Dog booklet, everyone made a Concertina binding with a choice of 2 cover styles, a Double Pamphlet notebook and then a Japanese Stab Stitch binding. Book covers were made from maps, pages of photography books (otherwise destined for landfill) and plant fibre paper. One participant used her own cyanotype to make the cover of her Stab Stitch book.
Thank you to everyone who came, I hope you enjoyed it as much as Laura and I did. Thanks also to Pauline Stanley at Artisan Community Art Studio for providing such a great workspace and setting it up so wonderfully.
If you're continuing to make books and have any questions or would like some help, please feel free to ask here or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org You can also buy that waxed linen thread in small quantities here.
Look forward to seeing you on the 28th September for the Medieval Journal workshop!
